Liverpool team news: One new Reds injury, but duo fit in boost for Klopp

Liverpool will head to Italy with a 5-2 advantage as they prepare to take on AS Roma for a place in the Champions League final and Jurgen Klopp will have a number of players available for the tie, according to a report by Sky Sports.

The Reds will know that the Serie A outfit can cause a shock, despite the comfortable lead, having witnessed Eusebio Di Francesco’s side stun Barcelona who held a similar goal advantage.

Klopp remains calm about the chance of lightning striking twice and has told his Liverpool side that they must continue to fight as much as they possibly can to ensure they qualify for a place in Kiev.

The German’s desires to make the European competition’s final shows in the naming of his side, with him taking a squad as strong as physically possible to the Stadio Olimpico.

Adam Lallana has travelled with the Reds having been out on the sidelines with another injury. The England international has been on the sidelines since March with a hamstring injury he picked up for Liverpool against Crystal Palace and saught treatment for the problem in South Africa.

Klopp has also named Sadio Mane in his travelling party after he missed last weekend’s match with Stoke City with a knock, whilst Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold could also be involved.

The Liverpool pair were considered doubts for the game with minor fitness concerns after their match with the Potters, however, both are expected to be available for the return leg.

Joe Gomez is the only player that will be unavailable for selection, having picked up an ankle problem in the Premier League clash last weekend, which ended in a goalless draw.
